I was thinking about making this my first Sportive.

Short Ride = 37 miles for me Very Happy

I've ridden the route before. Considering it's Yorkshire, it's very flat aside from a couple of big climbs on the long one. Short one should be a doddle. Ideal for your first.

That confuses things a bit.

I'd enjoy the short route, but I've done it all before.

Never rode up Clay Bank though, but if I can get up Carlton Bank on the mtb, then I would hope to try it on the roadie (road bike has much higher gearing)

Just hoping I can shake this cold off in time Sad

If i'm well I will defo try one, thing is, the shorts look a bit easy but the mediums are a good step up from my 30-40 mile weekly long ride

errrr no Laughing

No way I could do Carlton Bank on the road bike (34x25) my mtb has 22x34 and I nearly died doing it Laughing I'm sure I could do it now on a 22x32, but there's no way I want to push the road bike up.

Excellent Event and as you rightly say, very well organised with good support.

I should have been doing it but now have to work. Mad Mad

Tony, one of our Consultants has signed up for one of the Wiggle events this year

I'm sure he said the one starting at Thirsk, & the '100'

Unless he's riding more than he's telling me, he'll suffer Laughing

(as he lives on/rides around the 'flat-lands' between Leeds & Selby)
